Missed 6th pill of the pack, risk of pregnancy?

I've been on Yaz for a year now, been on Yasmin for about 5 years before that. I started my sexual life just last year, and been very carefull. Last two weeks, i went to visit my boyfriend abroad, and decided to try and have sex without the condom (we both checked no std's). Anyway, I'm a sunday starter, and had my last 4 inactive pills from aug 14th to 18th, and had my period starting from 17th to roughly around the 20th. All this time i took my pills, as i should have, exact same time. However today (saturday), when i had to take my pill i noticed the friday pill was missed (even though i could have sworn i took it) so i took both friday and saturday toghether. My worry is i had unproteted sex on the 22nd of august. How high would be the chances of a pregnancy? The yaz leaflet in my native language gives a different info than the one found online..so im confused.

Hello Anonymous,

On August 22, you were just two days into your new menstrual cycle.
That would be too early to ovulate. Though you missed your birth control pill and had unprotected sex, there is no chance that you could have conceived because no egg was released.

I hope that I have answered your question.
